Entertaining and interesting film of a good TV series.
29 July 2015 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

Some screams woke quiet people Fuencarral street. The number 109 is on fire. A maid called for help from the balcony. The residents of the building, along with the judge Felipe Peña, entered the second left, and found a charred corpse. It was Luciana Borcino, Vazquez-Varela widow woman in her 50s tremendously rich. The July 19, 1888 were executed the most famous of Spanish maid. The meaning of the last sentence, addressed to her best friend, Dolores Avila, had to take her with to the grave. After two years of research and contradictory statements crime Fuencarral Street seemed resolved. But as it is not always better the shortest path, here a number of signs that make us doubt the verdict. Miss Higinia Balaguer, twenty-eight, was killed by "Garrote Vil" by an infamy that perhaps did not commit. The trial was set for March 26 last year. There was no one more person in the square of the Salesians, in the district of Alonso Martínez. All the people of Madrid was this anxious to know the end of the tangle.

In 1985 a TV play was made directed by Angelino Fons entitled Crime Fuencarral street, produced by Pedro Costa and written by Carlos Perez Merinero, put on the air in the series entitled: The footprint of the crime. Higinia role was played by Carmen Maura.

This film introduces a new variant to its predecessors, a healthy dose of satire that works well.

We must emphasize the duo Luis Escobar and Francisco Nieva, a couple of old moneybags, boring, morbid and womanizing, adding the appeal necessary to give it a raalce this chapter.

It also highlights the figure of the judge, played by a great Rafael Alonso. The girl, then, Carmen Maura, was beginning to emerge as an actress.

In short, this film without being a highlight of his promotion, will convincing because it keeps the essence of this magnificent series.
